Something about this West End penthouse feels like a Florida vacation home. It’s surrounded by a fully planted wraparound terrace on three sides, and there’s plenty of light from large windows and oversized glass doors. Plus, it has some high-end finishes that make this $775,000 unit (yup, a penthouse for well under $1 million) really stand out.
Enter to find nine-foot ceilings, sugar maple floors, and built-ins. A 12-foot-long, south-facing kitchen offers a view of the red geraniums on your terrace. This white kitchen features a farmhouse sink, stone countertops, and a pullout pantry. And who could ignore that awesome carved wood table?
Pass the entertaining space with two sets of sliding glass doors and a gas burning fireplace, to get to the bed, which is surrounded by a closet, custom walnut built-ins, and an ornate overhang. There’s also a Zen-like bathroom clad in poured concrete with cedar accents. It features a deep soaking tub and Toto toilet/bidet. Then, step outside to the private, professionally landscaped garden which features south, north, and east exposures, custom lighting, and automatic irrigation for its many plantings, including wisteria and lilacs, stewartia, Japanese maple trees, clematis and Montauk daisies.
588 West End Avenue was built in 1922 and went co-op in 1980. Guests enjoy a central laundry room, bike room, and private storage. The pet-friendly building is also just steps from Riverside Park.
